In the interview which aired Thursday night, Obama said the only thing that's stopping Congress from passing a major immigration reform bill are House Republicans. He went on to say that Republicans are probably ashamed that they've accomplished so little over the past few years in Congress.

"And I actually think there are a bunch of Republicans who want to get stuff done. I-- they've gotta be embarrassed," Obama said. "Because the truth of the matter is is that they-- they've now been in charge of-- of the House of Representatives-- one branch or one chamber in one branch of government for a couple of years now. And they just don't have a lot to show for it."
